A typical morning for me at school begins around 6:40 am each day. Now, teachers don't have to arrive until 7:30 am, but for me, I need MORE time to do the things I NEED to do! What may that be you ask??? Part of my morning "get the class ready" routine involves:
For me, arriving to school early allows me the opportunity to do the things I NEED ( more like want) to do without having the pressure of 'time' working against me. Once the school day begins, it seems as though I don't even have a chance to gather my thoughts. (I refer to my days as 'sprints' rather than 'marathons.') So, although I do get to school ridiculously early, I almost prefer it that way....for my own peace of mind!
For those who know me, know I am very much a perfectionist and pride myself in doing the very best I can in everything that I do! Teaching is no different than anything else I do....if anything, I take my job MORE seriously than anything else that is going on in my life. After all, is it my responsibility to make sure I have the best possible lessons prepared, in each subject, to reach ALL of my students needs!! Whew- I'm exhausted just thinking about my day and what it entails.....but, when it comes down to it....I really do love what I do and I am honored to be in this profession!
